MarsNWE and DLink DE-950 Print Server

I am trying to use a D-Link DE-950 print server with a MarsNWE setup.
The problem I have is getting Linux/Mars to use the printer(s) connected to the print server.

The print server (as far as I can tell) is set up correctly - it can see the MarsNWE server and the printer ports can be set to any of the printer queues that are provided by MarsNWE.

However, when I print from a windows client, nothing is sent to the printer. Instead, the 'printer output' is stored as a QDR file on the server.

I've tried various entries in the nwserv.conf file (sections 21 & 22) but still can't get it to print.

Can anyone help?

I've managed to get it printing now.

It seems like you need to assign two printer queues to each printer port. The print server alternates between the queues every few seconds and picks up any new jobs when it gets round to servicing the queue again.

With only one queue assigned to a port it never sees any new jobs that may arise.

Strange....
